Families everywhere are in the thick of pretending that their camping experience is much better than being in a hotel.
The Thape family are happily pretending to enjoy weeing into a bucket, walking a mile to wash up, and nervously hiding £2K worth of electronics behind a quarter of a mm of nylon.
The Thape’s couldn’t be happier, huddled together round a fire, looking at the chilly night sky, whilst their bodies go through six different temperature changes resulting in the loss of least one child with pneumonia.
‘Look at the money we’re saving too – it’s only £27 a night here for the 5 of us,’ said frugal dad, Peter Thape.
‘Unless you count the £650 worth of camping equipment we’ve had to buy,’ he added.
